I shot his plane down.
First his fighter plane was just lost under unknown circumstances during WWII. People speculated on a possible suicide of the writer. Then his golden armband was found by a fisherman in the sea. Then
the plane of well known french writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
was found in the mediteranean.
Now 88 year old journalist Horst Rippert, who was a fighter pilot during WWII, admits
that he shot down Saint-Exupéry and that he regretted this his whole life.
